These are a few of my favorite things…

1 Apr

I have a limited amount of time (baby doesn’t nap long and pre-schooler is home sick but watching tv) so I will probably split this into several posts.

Some of these I will have undoubtedly mentioned in other posts – they are my favorites after all .  I will link these products to the previous blog posts instead of regurgitating the information.

Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

Tinted Moisturizer

Several reasons I love this:

      • It’s just the right color for my pale complexion
      • It has SPF 15 (although I would love it even more if it was SPF 30)
      • It makes my face look glowy and fresh without looking greasy

Makeup For Ever HD Microfinish Powder


How do I love the let me count the ways.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion in Eden


I LOVE this product so much because:

  • on my skin tone  I can use it on my dark circles as a corrector/concealer and it helps any additional concealer to stay put (but I often only use this)
  • it evens out the color on my eyelids
  • it gives my eyeshadow staying power
  • it makes my eyeshadows appear more vibrant

Tarte Cheek Stain in Blissful

Tarte cheek stain

Blissful is a warm peachy pink color that looks absolutely amazing and glowy on almost everyone. Think Nars Orgasm but without the shimmer. It adds a bit of a dewy look to the complexion and blends beautifully.

Benefit High Beam

High Beam

This is my favorite highlighter by far. I like that it adds a natural glow without being obvious.  Some great places to use it (after foundation and before powder) are:

  • On the browbone just under the eyebrow
  • The inner corner of the eye near the tear duct (to helpyou look more awake)
  • On tops of the cheek bones

Stay tuned for Part 2 of These are a Few of My Favorite Things…
